The Syrian government has agreed to the cessation plan, but says it could fail if foreign states supply rebels with weapons or insurgents use the truce to rearm. A US-led global coalition has been conducting a separate military campaign against ISIL in Syria, albeit without the approval of Damascus or the UN Security Council, since September 2014.

President Barack Obama has directed his national security team to press the US-led worldwide campaign to destroy the Islamic State group "on all fronts".
